for the most part to our known knowledge the inuit and other Arctic tribes. There are a few tribes just belows the arctic tribes that supposedly did but im not sure what ones did. You could say that the sun dance practiced by the lakota and cheyenne tribes during the Indian wars was a type of reincarnation. They believed their ancestors would rise up and take the land back from the whites. The apache also had a similar type of belief during this time as well. The hard part of knowing this answer is there are really no written records from almost any tribes. Also since most of the native american religions are oral based they had to be passed down and when their cultures were destroyed by european encroachment a lot of their beliefs and practices were lost. For information about this subject 'The Encyclopedia of Native American Tribes' by Carl Waldman is a good place to start. Another source is 'In The Hands of the Great Spirit' by jake page. The last book I found to be an excellent source as well as book.

Hinduism believes in reincarnation
Man can get perfection only through reincarnation,
it is not a mere belief, but proved one.
The great ones and average ones have the memory of the past birth.(not all but a few)
Present birth is a continuation of the past.
Sree Krishna said to Arjuna (in Bhagavath Gita) that they both have so many births, but Arjuna can not remember it, but Sree Krishna do.

In 20th century also there are examples for reincarnation
